beth_may It worked GREAT live, from an initial skeptic who was in the room twitter.com/u2gigs/status/…

@gilson_jr_ Yeah but what if this requires me to descend into hell for a bottle of milk.

(HELL YES I WORKED THAT INTO A PUN.)

Here’s our full report and the setlist from #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 Indianapolis: u2gigs.com/article1225.ht…

JereVenencia13 @u2gigs Just play the whole damn song. Sounded so great at Barcelona when they soundchecked it.

Many thanks to @Dreams_Out_Loud for a great Mixlr, and to all those who Periscoped! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono thanks the band, their crew, Beck, etc. That’s it for the night. MWays dropped for Best Thing, no other changes. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@gilson_jr_ But I still haven’t found the puns I’m looking for.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to gilson_jr_

Wow, this Drowning Man snippet is quite long. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Snippet of Native Son is around the minute mark. twitter.com/agustwo/status…

 via Twitter Web Client

It ended a couple of minutes ago, but yes, seconded! It was very good. twitter.com/mtboftx/status…

 via Twitter Web Client

@Softball477Marc Best Thing, like Boots, sounds like 3-4 different songs copy and pasted together awkwardly. That’s the comparison.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Softball477Marc

@gilson_jr_ These puns could get out of control…

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to gilson_jr_

21. I don’t have a pun for One, sorry. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “thank you for listening to 4 Irishmen, especially me, sounding off about your country” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@Softball477Marc It’s at least cohesive and got some energy. Best Thing is a clumsy mess like Boots was. Terrible single choice.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Softball477Marc

@gilson_jr_ Actually this is all Ax! Joined, of course, by my friend Shamu the Mysterious Whale.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to gilson_jr_

@GnoccoFritto I do agree there. Boots, what a mess. Best Thing at least doesn’t have “sexy boots” or the submarine/gasoline line.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to GnoccoFritto

Did you know Edge once snippeted Native Son, the early version of Vertigo? u2gigs.com/Native_Son-s73…

 via Twitter Web Client

@GnoccoFritto I still bloody hate it, but I can put up with hearing that live version on a stream more than that ov… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to GnoccoFritto

20. Ultra Violet (Light My Ray) #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

He told his wife, who laughed and said she wasn’t leaving him, he wasn’t leaving her, and even if he tried he wouldn’t find the door.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

Bono describes The Best Thing is about a nightmare where he woke up in a strange house & his wife & kids left him - or he left them.

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono asks the crowd if The Best Thing sounded alright. “We don’t wanna over-rehearse it, do we Edge?” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

At least The Best Thing sounds a little more organic live. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@themadirishman3 Personally I rate it as far, far better than Vertigo’s studio version.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to themadirishman3

19. YOU’RE THE BEST THING ABOUT ME, second ever live performance, first after Fallon’s show #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “we’d like to do a song we’ve never played in front of our audience before” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “For those of you who haven’t heard The Dalton Brothers, you’re not missing anything, but we looked great! Especially Betty Dalton.”

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “Indianapolis has been the scene of some special debuts.” Here it coooomes… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Vertigo has a snippet of It’s Only Rock & Roll. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

If you prefer Native Son, perhaps it’s VertiNO.

 via Twitter Web Client

@gilson_jr_ I’ve got an old favourite up my sleeve if MW stays in the set.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to gilson_jr_

@AntonioMbass I’m frankly surprised they haven’t included that in the set somewhere.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to AntonioMbass

@gilson_jr_ I hope you’re happy with what I just posted then!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to gilson_jr_

Beautiful Day has a snippet of Bowie’s Starman. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

After Matkin’s little intervention to add all of JT after just ISHFWILF, I can now go back to adding songs to the database!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

16. Beautiful Day opens the encore #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Alas, it’s the encore break. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

That’s the end of Mothers of the Disappeared—come on do Luccile now! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

15. Mothers of the Disappeared #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Exit has its usual snippets of Wise Blood and Eeny Meeny Miny Moe. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

14. Walter Trump introduces Exit #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono’s talking to somebody in the crowd who was there in 1987. “Were you changed by the experience of the Dalton Brothers?”

 via Twitter Web Client

I vote for an impromptu Lucille after Mothers of the Disappeared. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “Happy anniversary to the Dalton Brothers”! He then tries to remember each band member’s Dalton name. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@AntonioMbass @atu2comSherry Welcome to side 2 of your obsolete minidisc Joshua Tree.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to AntonioMbass

U2RadioBrook @u2gigs A little mess up on In God’s Country..Bono jumps to third verse in second verse, then goes back. #U2JoshuaTreeTour2017

 via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 4:26 AM, Sep 11th, 2017  via Twitter Web Client)

Bono: “we [the Irish] are the original Dreamers … America was built for dreamers, by dreamers”. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono’s reciting the “every day the dreamers die to see what’s on the other side” verse a cappella after IGC. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@atu2comSherry Hahaha. Has he said CD? I hope he has said CD. “Welcome to side 2 of the MP3 digital album.”

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to atu2comSherry

Bono remarks there “might be a few scratches” to side 2 of the Joshua Tree vinyl. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

10. Red Hill Mining Town is hangin’ on to its usual album spot. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

9. RTSS: Running to The usual Setlist Spot. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

America (West Side Story) snippet in Bullet too. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

For your next challenge, Bono, try snippeting the whole War album.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

“Suit and tie comes up to me…” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bullet has a snippet of Edwin Starr’s song War over the first solo. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

The great Mixlr by @Dreams_Out_Loud is back after buffering hell, by the way: mixlr.com/dreams_out_lou… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

8. Bullet the Blue Sky, because as Matkin’s mainpage setlist indicates, what else would it be! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Ahahahaha, well played Matkin.

Ok, let’s see how mad he gets… =P #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

6. I Still Haven’t Found. And there was a California snippet in Streets. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Mixlr just fell over for me, now watching #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 Indy show here: pscp.tv/w/1lPJqwoanjPK…

 via Twitter Web Client

5. The Joshua Tree is starting: Where the Streets Have No Name #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono references RFK’s famous speech in Indianapolis made on the day of MLK’s death. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono starts his Pride speech, then pauses and does another “oh oh oh”. Lose your place there, mate? #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Just read that some sick bastards evacuated Florida coast but tied their dogs to trees outside instead of taking them. Folks, don’t do that.

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bad has its usual snippet of Simon & Garfunkel’s America. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono, you can stop talking over the intro of Bad now. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: at start of Bad: “Thank you for coming out to see us… whether you crossed the street, the river, or the state to get here.”

 via Twitter Web Client

 via Twitter Web Client

I (Ax) am writing our mainpage article for today’s gig right now & only just caught a mistake: “the Dalton Braltons”. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Technically 5th and 4th respectively. One of them was this little prank… u2gigs.com/show1562.html #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

This is only U2’s sixth concert in Indiana. 5th in Indianapolis. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

1. Sunday Bloody Sunday, which will probably open every show this tour at the current rate. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Besides whether Best Thing actually gets played, surely tonight’s big question is if Matkin has some good song title puns for us.

 via Twitter Web Client

Actually I meant for it to fit in between! And I would make a snarky comment about UV here but I do prefer it to Be… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

 via Twitter Web Client

Just about go-time, folks. Whole of the Moon is playing over the PA. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Just realized that the reason Ax said Best Thing would be good after MW is cause then it’d replace UV. Sneaky, Ax! Matkin.

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

barry_pike Happening now. Cool backstage view of the U2 concert in Indianapolis. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 #U2 #LucasOilStadium https://t.co/SfgqZP9ECH
